  • Kurt Conley @ Uncommon Ground!

    You're Being Ridiculous is super excited to be back at Uncommon Ground, Edgewater with a fun fall show for you! AND ... we're delighted to welcome Kurt Conley to YBR to share a story with us ... learn a little about Kurt here and get your tickets!

    Kurt lived most of his life in Erie, PA. But in 2013, he traded one Great Lake for another and moved to Chicago, where he completed an MFA in Writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2015. Currently, he’s putting the finishing touches on his first novel while working hard on the follow-up, making feminist-as-fuck art, volunteering at the Gerber Hart Library, and being the queerest queermo he can be.

    What are you thankful for this year??

    1) my husband: Look, yes I know this is fucking gross but I really don't care. He's amazing and cute and a total goofball and you should be so lucky.

    2) my therapist: I'm fortunate to be in a position where I can afford it, and my therapist is wonderful and has helped me through some legitimately tough times. We cry together. How cool is that?!

    3) my friends: I was going to put something irreverent and silly for my third thing, but this world is a goddamn shitshow and I don't have time for it right now. Do what I do and surround yourself with beautiful souls that accept you no matter what, purple lipstick or not.
